Call for papers: Special Issue on Structural Health Monitoring for Resilience of Infrastructure

Structural health monitoring (SHM) can play an unique role in making condition information available in time for informed decision of infrastructure functionality and safety immediately after an disastrous event, optimal management of the following reconstruction for reduced downtime, and public awareness for roadway serviceability until the affected infrastructure is recovered to its original capacity. 

This special issue aims to provide an overview of various structural health monitoring technologies for improved resilience of infrastructure. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, new methods and tools for critical data collection, analytics, and visualization; insightful correlation studies between SHM and infrastructure resilience; damage identification and system identification; novel approaches to convey condition data to decision-makers; and SHM case studies towards resilience. Papers that describe the application of unmanned aerial vehicles, remote sensing, augmented and virtual reality, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, industrial internet of things, and resilience models are particularly encouraged.

Submitted papers that are under consideration for publication elsewhere will be returned without review. Please inform Professor Genda Chen about your intention to submit a manuscript. 

Submission deadline: September 1, 2020
